Samsung WB800F Review


The Samsung WB800F does a good job of delivering the ease of touch screen navigation and Wi-Fi photo sharing without abandoning key photographic features. The powerful 21X zoom opens a lot of possibilities, and the inclusion of full manual mode and...

Powerful 21X zoom ; Wi-Fi sharing features ; Attractive photo filters ; Good image and video quality ; Touch screen works well ; 8fps full-resolution burst mode ; Dedicated buttons for easy menu navigation

Touch screen navigation is sometimes clumsy ; Burst modes are limited to 6 shots ; Wide-angle (23mm) shots distort at edges ; Low-light performance could be better ; Auto focus fails while zooming out in movie mode ; Flash does not work in burst mode

Samsung Smart Camera WB800F (white)


Editors' note: Several of the design elements, features, and shooting options are identical between the Samsung WB800F and the WB250F we reviewed earlier, so readers may experience some deja vu when reading the same sections below.

The Samsung WB800F Smart Camera has excellent wireless features and an abundance of shooting options for all types of shooters. It has a handy pop-up flash and very good photo and video quality for its price and features.

Button placement on top of the camera could be better, and accessing some of the setting menus isn't always straightforward. Photo quality is merely OK above ISO 400.

A 21x zoom and a wealth of shooting options and wireless features make the Samsung WB800F Smart camera a fine smartphone accessory.

21x zoom lens. Wide-angle 23mm field of view. Sharp images. Integrated Wi-Fi. Touch-screen display

Images suffer at high ISO settings. Not the sharpest LCD. Slightly bulky. Rolling shutter evident in video. In-camera battery charging only

The Samsung WB800F ($299.99 direct) is a compact superzoom cameras with an impressively sharp 21x zoom lens. It's also got a responsive touch screen and one of the better Wi-Fi implementations we've seen. But the Editors' Choice Canon PowerShot SX280...

Samsung WB800F Review


One of the most interesting recent developments in the ongoing digital imaging revolution is the introduction of the travel zoom point and shoot digital camera. Travel zooms look and handle like compact P&S cameras, but they feature extra long zoom...

fast maximum aperture ; neutral colors ; integral handgrip ; excellent image quality

LCD is prone to glare ; no RAW mode

The WB800F is a compact, well designed, sturdily built, and easy to use P&S digicam with a 21x zoom, but I'd like to offer a bit of advice to Samsung's product development folks - constantly crowding more pixels onto tiny P&S digicam sensors results in...
